Dong Nai Ranks Third in Provincial Green Index Nationwide Update: 17-05-2024
On the morning of May 9, the Vietnam Confederation of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI) and Provincial Green Index (PGI) in 2023.
 


Dong Nai ranked 3rd in the Provincial Greening Index

Accordingly, in the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI), Dong Nai is outside the top 30 high-ranking provinces/cities. Meanwhile, in the Provincial Green Index (PGI), Dong Nai ranks 3rd in the country right after Quang Ninh and Da Nang. The next localities in the top 5 are Hung Yen and Ho Chi Minh City.

For Dong Nai, the high ranking on the PGI index means that the province is pursuing a green development strategy, prioritizing selective investment attraction. Dong Nai is a pioneer in the project to reduce carbon emissions in the province by 2030, with the vision to 2050 in order to realize Net Zero according to the Government's commitment at COP26 and COP28. Currently, the People's Committee has issued Decision No. 385/QD-UBND of the province dated February 19, 2024 approving the project to reduce carbon emissions until 2030, with the vision to 2050 in Dong Nai province.

The Provincial Green Index (PGI), initiated in 2022, is a set of indicators to evaluate and rank how environmentally friendly a locality is, based on its business practices such as the level of application of environmentally friendly technology of local businesses, the level of management and environmental behavior of businesses, the level of interest and willingness to invest in environmental issues of local authorities, and other significant environmental issues. The goal of the green index is to promote provinces and cities in Vietnam to pay more attention to economic development associated with environmental protection, providing timely information to support provincial and city governments in policy planning, promoting the building of an environmentally friendly business ecosystem, contributing to attracting environment-minded investors, and “green” and quality projects to Vietnam.

The Provincial Green Index is evaluated and ranked based on four component indexes: (1) mitigating environmental pollution and negative impacts of climate change; (2) ensuring compliance with minimum environmental standards; (3) the role of provincial governments in promoting green practices; (4) policies and services to support businesses in environmental protection.
